I think *this* comment is unfair to Alan.  I read Alan as saying
"don't assume that users can rely on an SM present".  If I'm right,
that is a far cry from tearing the community into parts.  I think you
would admit that not everyone uses SM.  So you didn't ding Alan
(who is doing really heroic work for the community) for simply
reminding us that a SM-based approach would not serve the
whole community equally.  Did you impute some other motive to him?
